Woman charged with murder, boyfriend dead from stab wounds
NEW ORLEANS- A woman who authorities say stabbed her boyfriend in New Orleans is charged with second-degree murder after he died at a hospital.
News outlets report that 32-year-old Valencia Kelly is accused of stabbing 35-year-old Travis Thomas multiple times in his legs on Oct. 13.
The Orleans Parish Coroner's Office says Thomas died on Sunday from "sharp force injuries."
New Orleans police Detective Rayell Johnson said in an arrest warrant that surveillance footage showed Kelly lunging to cut Thomas with a knife.
A public defender has been appointed to Kelly's case.
A single charge of attempted second-degree murder was updated to second-degree murder the day after Thomas died. At Kelly's court appearance Tuesday, Judge Harry Cantrell increased her bond from $50,000 to $200,000.
